    This site can’t be reached

    You should also add DirectoryIndex index.php because it could be that the server defaults to index.html or some other file that is doing the redirect in your browser.

    Try adding Options -MultiViews in your htaccess file (below the ErrorDocument directives near the top). (just a shot in the dark, but I would definitely try it as Apache's Multiviews option can sometimes result in unexpected behaviour).

    MySQL connection issue when using custom domain

    Have you tried using define('DB_SERVER', ''); in includes/configure.php instead of localhost ?
  4. On the osCommerce website https://www.oscommerce.com/ hosting company Hostiso https://hostiso.com/ is prominently featured as one of the partners of osCommerce. Does anyone have first hand experience with them? Their company setup is slightly obscure: they claim the be based in Switzerland, but their company is actually a LLC registered in the US, and they seem to be using mostly Leaseweb servers in Germany (their own website is hosted in Germany as well). I can't find many conclusive recent reviews regarding their hosting though.

    International Credit Card Payments with Paypal

    That applies to any credit card transaction, not just international ones. But for the latter that number seems to have been reduced to 0. You can test it by selecting a delivery address other than the UK. The Paypal payment page will force you to sign up for an account.

    International Credit Card Payments with Paypal

    I emailed them, and I am still waiting for a reply. The phone support is useless though in this respect. Their call centre people don't have a clue about this.
  7. We are using Paypal IPN on our cart, which should customers allow to pay without a Paypal account as well. However, we are getting an increasing number of complaints from customers who are forced to open a Paypal account after checkout. We did tests ourselves and found that this seems to be indeed the case for international payments. Apparently Paypal does not allow international credit card payments anymore without opening a Paypal account. As our website is targeted for the French market only (in French and running on a French domain), practically 100% of the sales will be from customers in France (or French overseas territories) not the UK (where we are located). We are losing therefore many customers (estimated 30%) who, for one or the other reason, do not want to open a Paypal account when paying. Does somebody have more info on this, and maybe suggestions how the setup could be changed to allow credit card payments also for international customers? Would signing up for Paypal Pro allow this, or are there the same restrictions in place?

    How does the Stripe module work?

    Hi, Could somebody briefly explain how a correctly installed Stripe module would be working? Would the customer stay on our website all the time? I installed the Stripe 1.1 module on our cart (based on v 2.2) but when confirming the order nothing happens, but this could obviously be due to the fact that we don't have an account with Stripe yet.

    Paypal Express Redirects to Login Page

    Hi, I installed the 'Paypal Express Checkout' ( http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,5658/ ) on my OSC cart (a modified 2.2 MS2 version), but rather than going to Paypal when clicking the 'Checkout with Paypal' button it redirects me to the login page (which I do not want as I want to give customers the opportunity to buy items without having an account). I also tried the 'PayPal Pro Direct Payments & Express Checkout' (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/3647/v,22 ) with the same result. When I remove the redirect to the login page at the top of the ext/modules/payment/paypal/express.php (for the first contribution), I am directed to Paypal but after completing the payment there, I am being redirected back to the login page on my website (and no payment is recorded on Paypal). Could somebody tell me what I would have to do to actually have an 'Express' checkout without forcing people to sign up for an account? If not with these two modules, would it work with the 'PayPal Express Checkout and Website Payments Pro (Official Payment Module)' (http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,7184/ )? From the setup instructions of this one, it seems that it is possible to have the direct Paypal checkout, but this module is based on the RC2a version , and I wonder whether it would work for a MS2 versions as well.
